The purpose of this study is to examine how social workers of economic aid experience threats, violations and disrespect in their occupation and also how they experience their own safety as well as their organization’s support. In this study I use a qualitative method to investigate their experiences by doing semi-structural interviews. Previous research is used to explain and give further understanding of the social workers’ experiences. Theories of power and communication are applied to explain and give understanding to the empirical material. The study shows that social workers in economic aid experienced threats, violations and disrespect in their occupation. They are affected by their experiences in different ways and their experiences often go hand in hand with denying the client economic aid. Some of the interviewed social workers even accept these experiences as a part of their occupation. The study shows also that the received support from their respective organizations has an impact on how the individual social worker experiences threats, violations and disrespect and how they deal with it.
